What's the relation between these words:

mix

audio

duct

measure

electric

magnetic

deck

(This one isn't very difficult for my first attempt of a word puzzle.)

Since it's been solved, I'll add others that I can think of just for a completed list:

Scotch
grip
recorder

  • $\begingroup$ Ignoring the many kinds of adhesive tape, here are some more for the list: red, off, cassette, video, punch, caution, drive, audition, sex, gun, and everything found on this list $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast May 21 '15 at 16:56
  • $\begingroup$ Technically it should be 'Duct' not 'Duck' unless you are referring to the specific brand name of that product. $\endgroup$ – Spencerkatty May 21 '15 at 19:17

All of the words can be preceded or followed by the word tape to create another word/phrase:

mix tape
duck tape
audio tape
tape measure
electric tape
magnetic tape
deck tape / tape deck

    $\begingroup$ To me, some of the words sound better when preceded by tape: tape measure, tape deck $\endgroup$ – Julian Rosen May 21 '15 at 16:46
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks - I was thinking deck tape like you'd use for a skateboard - you're right about the tape measure though. I was thinking along the lines of measuring tape, I assumed it was a difference in regional expressions. $\endgroup$ – alexmc May 21 '15 at 16:48

The answer is

tape. They can all be followed by -tape to form a word.
